A new look at industrialization in Mexico that focuses on women wage earners across the work force, from factory workers to street vendors. Drawing on a wealth of material, from petitions of working women to government factory inspection reports, Porter shows how a shifting cultural understanding of working women informed labor relations, social legislation, government institutions, and ultimately the construction of female citizenship.
